Big changes for the city of Minneapolis are coming in terms of transportation projects. Hennepin County is pushing for a $79.3 million two-tiered transit hub where five commuter rails would intersect near Target Field. This new development, currently being called “The Interchange,” could become a busy entertainment center for people coming in and out and moving around the city.
The partnership with the Twins would increase interest, and foot traffic, and would boost transit use in the area surrounding Target Field, where the Twins play. There is still much to talk about in terms of money, parking, development, and naming rights between the team and the development company, but the basic ideas are in place.
The Interchange is scheduled to open in spring of 2014.
